Burg Simpson’s Award-Winning Colorado Medical Malpractice Team:

Focusing on Birth Injuries

Burg Simpson’s award-winning Medical Malpractice Team focuses a significant portion of their legal practice on birth injuries. A birth injury or birth trauma refers to any injury sustained by the baby during the process of labor and delivery.

Our attorneys have the depth of experience and trial expertise necessary to provide our medical malpractice clients with the compensation they deserve and the care, support, and guidance they need.

When a Child Sustains a Birth Injury

When a child has sustained a birth injury, it does not necessarily mean that the medical team was at fault for the injury. The process of labor and delivery is stressful on newborns, and birth injuries can occur even when a child received the best possible medical care. But sometimes, birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice. For example, birth injuries can occur when medical providers do not anticipate problems in prenatal care, or the mother and child are not adequately tested or monitored during labor and delivery. When birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice, Burg Simpson is here is help.

Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is the most common developmental disability among children in the U.S. The most common cause of CP is the lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during birth. Burg Simpson shareholder Scott Eldredge wrote an article published by Law Week Colorado called, “When Cerebral Palsy is the Resul of Medical Malpractice”.

What is the Cost of Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim for a Birth Injury?

Burg Simpson pays for the costs associated with obtaining our medical malpractice client’s medical records. The firm also covers the costs for filing fees and expert reviews. Burg Simpson is reimbursed for these costs only if the medical malpractice claim is paid. If our client does not receive compensation for the birth injury, and there is no recovery, the client does not owe us anything. We do not get paid unless you get paid.

When Do I Have to File a Claim for Medical Malpractice?

There are statutes of limitation regarding how long you can wait to file a medical malpractice claim. If you or someone you know has a child who has suffered from a birth injury due to the possible negligence of a medical professional, call Burg Simpson for free now to schedule a consultation with one of our medical malpractice attorneys.
